Morning Tea #6: carbon on the blockchain, the big startup tax

Altroleum is picking up steam and things are getting busy. I’ve written a slightly longer piece on a single topic both to cover a bit more ground on one issue and because I have loads of actual work to do.

I’ve been kept fairly busy thinking about how carbon certificates can be issued and traded as a standalone asset. The right way to do this appears to a programmable instrument with instant settlement and an extremely low cost of administration. This is a use case for blockchain.
